You can’t judge a book by its cover.

Yet that is what most readers do. If your cover doesn’t grab their attention, they’ll never even read your blurb, much less buy your book.

On Saturday, May 15th, from 9 am to noon Karl Keating will present his Cover Design Workshop. He will give you a brief history of book covers, explain the dos and don’ts of cover text, go over what the cover is for, and go over the good, the bad, and the ugly of cover design.

There will be in-class exercises to help you have a more successful cover.

Increase your sales with a proper cover. Register for the workshop today.

Karl Keating is an author, publisher, and editor for thirty years. he’s written sixteen books (some have sold into six figures), and has overseen the publication of other books. Born in Chicago, he grew up near Los Angeles, and since college has lived in San Diego. He practiced law for twelve years and later founded and headed a non-profit organization.

He enjoys off-roading in his Jeep, backpacking in Grand Canyon and the Sierra Nevada, and playing the baroque mandolino and the ukulele, but he’s not particularly good at any of them.
